Local students walk out of school to protest Education Secretary Betsy DeVos

Students from across the Treasure Valley walked out of school Thursday to protest Education Secretary Betsy DeVos.

The group's organizer, a student from Borah High, told KBOI 2News that they want to send a loud message to Idaho lawmakers that they don't support President Trump's cabinet member.

The Boise School District says any student that participated and did not have a parent's permission to leave school, will received an unexcused absence.

"Fight, fight, fight, fight education is our right," students were heard chanting.
